facilitated by Harald Reiter in English with Slovak consecutive interpreting

This online course „Introduction to Insight Dialogue“ is a five-week offering that introduces the six guidelines of Insight Dialogue, based on the Teachings of the Buddha as a contemplative framework. The program focuses on the core elements of this interpersonal Dhamma practice:

  • Meditative Qualities like mindfulnes, investigation, energy, joy, tranquility, concentration and equanimity
  • Wisdom Dhamma including the 4 Noble Truths and the 5 Aggregates and other teachings
  • Relationship including the 4 Brahmaviharas and interpersonal mindfulness and insight practice

For more information about Insight Dialogue, please visit www.insightdialogue.org.

Participants will meet in real time on ZOOM over five consecutive weeks for 3 hours each. Each week one or two of the guidelines will be presented and experienced directly in contemplative dialogue practice.  There will be periods of silent mindfulness practice, guided meditations, talks, dialogue contemplative practice and experience exchange. Between the sessions the participants will be invited to practice in daily life.

Prerequisites:

Some prior meditation experience is required for participation, such as individual ongoing meditation practice or prior experience in mindfulness or meditation courses or retreats. Please address your questions about this topic to Harald Reiter, meditation@shiatsu-im-raum.at.

Words can be very powerful and as we are using language, we need a safe framework. For this the Buddha provides the practice of the 5 Silas. It is mandatory to practice non harming, confidentiality about what is shared in the dialogue practice, refraining from sensual misconduct, refraining from wrong or harsh speech and refraining from intoxicating drinks and drugs before and during course sessions.
